Not sure what to say?

Happy Birthday in heaven Jim. Taken much too soon from your wonderful, loving family. You were always a true friend to me and not a day goes by where I can't think of an amusing anecdote about our brief time together in Cleveland that brings a smile to my face.

I will be eternally grateful for the four years we spent working together.



I know you are in Heaven looking down on us all. You were a great husband and father and a wonderful friend.

I only hope you know how much you were loved and respected by those you left behind. May God bless your family.


Happy Birthday in Heaven Jim. You may be gone in body but your memory lives on with me every single day. I hope over time your loved ones have been able to find some measure of peace but your loss left a big void.

Jim, I too will never forget you, and I look forward to seeing you again. I still see your smiling face each day in a picture on my kitchen counter from one of the last times we shared a beer together. I still cannot believe you are gone, but I know that having you as my friend enriched my life and that of so many others. Today marks three years that I and many have missed you. Until we meet again my friend. Rich Jankura

Always in our hearts Jimbo. ❤

A man is not truly gone while his name is still spoken. Cathy and I talk about you frequently and Harry Newmark and I had a long conversation about you a few weeks back. You may be gone in body but you will live forever in spirit and in our memories. Rest in eternal peace pal.

Jim, Happy Birthday in Heaven, I will never forget your friendship and loyalty, and the times we spent together. I wish I could have known you longer. May God Bless and comfort Tricia and your children.


I will never forget what a friend you were to me when we moved to Cleveland knowing no one. I know you're in a better place looking down on all of us. I'm sure you had a great seat when The Cavs brought the title home to Cleveland for the first time since '64. I think this will be the Tribe's year.

Rest In Peace friend.

It's hard for me to even begin this. Jim and I worked together for the 4 years I lived in Cleveland. Unfortunately, we lost touch shortly. after I took a job in South Florida in July 2000, as frequently happens.

Those four years I spent in Cleveland were the happiest years of our lives, and though we hadn't spoken in a very long time I thought of Jim pretty regularly over the years, never more so than when the Cavs finally broke the Cleveland curse. Because I lost touch with all...
